Make It Your Own

MIYO Inspiration Entryway | mint

The entryway is the oft forgotten space in a house, so when I saw that Glitter Guide Editor, Caitlin, had come up with some entryway inspiration I knew I had to figure out how to make such a small space with big impact my own. Don’t shy away from mixing textures – if you have a lot of white, mix in some metallics and fun fabrics to give it some punch. Try to avoid over-cluttering the surface if you can. Find a table with drawers, or grab a couple cute containers to store unsightly items. Here’s some inspiration on how to make this entryway your own:

With Spring in the air it’s hard to not want to make every room as bright and airy as humanly possible. This apartment up for sale in Stockholm is just too cute, and while all the MIYO suggestions are for new items, you could totally make this room your own with all vintage items on a reasonable budget. Have you ever gone bold and painted trim a bright color? I know what I’ll be trying this weekend!

MIYO Nate Berkus Room | mint

Every time I see a Nate Berkus interior, I just about fall out of my chair with envy. They are always this incredible mix of masculine and natural textures, worn materials that just invite you to come in for awhile. When I spotted this room, it was no exception. What’s not to love about it?

Thankfully, Nate Berkus has a fabulous collaboration going on with Target, which makes his signature style realistic for anyone. Lots of brass, woven baskets, and rich textiles. Mix it with some nice leather pieces, new or used, and some bold graphic rugs, and this room can totally be your own.

The kitchen and dining room are two of my favorite spaces in the house, and Jane + Jim did an excellent job making their dual purpose space a fun and inviting place to dine with family and friends. If you’re a fan of Scandi style, keep your kitchen basic – take advantage of how easily you can decorate when your canvas is white, adding pops of color to create drama in the space. Follow the lead of Jane + Jim and splurge on one big piece, like a reproduction Smeg fridge, then deck the rest of the space out in totally affordable pieces – in this case, all ikea. Here are a few ideas on how to make their space your own:

When I saw Bri Emery’s unveiled living room I just about died. What an incredible mix of colors, patterns, and textures in a brilliantly lit space. I’m a glutton for a mix of vintage and new furniture, and Emily Henderson knocked it out of the park with this collection. If you find a piece of furniture with great bones, don’t be afraid to refinish it. Re-upholstery can totally transform a piece of furniture from bland to grand for a quarter of the cost of a new sofa. You can also do as Emily did and use plants, artwork, and bold furniture to add color to a space rather than painting your walls. Here’s how to make this room your own:
